The logistics industry is facing significant challenges, especially in road freight transportation. To address these challenges, the STAFFEL research project is showcasing innovative solutions at NUFAM 2023 that promise to revolutionize truck freight transport. Discover how Artificial Intelligence and IoT technology are shaping the future of freight transportation.
STAFFEL: Addressing Logistics Industry Challenges with Innovation
The logistics industry is currently facing unprecedented pressure due to increasing traffic, high operating costs, environmental regulations, and a shortage of personnel. In response, the research project STAFFEL offers a groundbreaking solution in the form of an AI-powered internet platform for seamless and efficient relay transport.
Cost Savings and Efficiency Improvements in Focus
The STAFFEL platform aims to significantly reduce costs and time in truck transportation. It achieves this by optimizing vehicle utilization, preventing driver hour violations, and reducing CO2 emissions caused by parking search. Simultaneously, it places great emphasis on substantially improving working conditions for truck drivers.
The Revolution of Relay Transport: A Paradigm Shift
In relay transport, long routes are divided into segments to facilitate the exchange of trailers or carriers at predefined handover points. STAFFEL employs AI algorithms to optimize this division. Real-time communication between logistics companies and carriers allows routes to be adjusted according to demand, eliminating long breaks and CO2-intensive parking searches. This results in a 33% faster execution of truck transports.
Benefits for Shippers and Transport Companies Unveiled
Carriers benefit significantly from faster, safer, and more environmentally friendly goods transportation. At the same time, transportation companies optimize the utilization of their vehicles and alleviate the burden on their drivers, who now have more opportunities to stay in their hometowns.
Smart Lock” – Pioneering Trailer Security Technology
The security of unattended trailers is a pressing concern in the logistics industry. Enter the “Smart Lock,” a groundbreaking IoT locking system making its debut at NUFAM 2023.
Keyless Security: Innovative and Reliable Trailer Protection
The “Smart Lock” by PEM Motion GmbH is a keyless locking system that can be seamlessly integrated into trailer telematics software. Using a dedicated app that utilizes Bluetooth and mobile connectivity, the Smart Lock securely locks and unlocks the trailer. An advanced security concept ensures that only authorized individuals, regardless of their location, can access the trailer.
Enhanced Theft Protection and Beyond with “Smart Lock
The “Smart Lock” eliminates the time-consuming manual securing of trailers, providing a convenient solution to prevent theft and mix-ups. In an era of increasing criminal activity in freight transport, this system offers a wide range of applications, from meeting traffic to trailer rental.
